CovertAction Quarterly investigates NASA's plans to launch a nuclear space probe to Saturn in October 1997. The Casini probe will carry 72.3 pounds of plutonium-238 and sit atop the Titan IV, a rocket model known to have undergone mishaps in the past. Scientists predict the probe could easily explode inside the earth's atmosphere on its way to Saturn, or in the earth's oceans where it would cause an uncontrollable nuclear reaction. (Summer 1996)
